Virtual Desktop

Virtual Desktops allow anyone with a campus NetID to access campus software from anywhere via the internet--even from a mobile device. In addition to software, you will be able to access your USER (J :) and SHARED (S :) drives as if you were on a campus computer, making it a user-friendly and seamless alternative to Net Storage. You may also print to a local computer from the virtual lab. Follow these instructions to install and run the client that gives you access to virtual labs at UW-Platteville.
